The Reggae Caribbean Cookout

Mr Jerk street food montage

In the scheme of things, £2,000 does not seem like an insurmountable sum of money to establish a food project that also benefits the community. So I’m wishing street food trader Mr Jerk the best of luck in his endeavour to find a new home for his Reggae Caribbean Cookout.

The Reggae Caribbean Cookout delighted foodies at The Coffin Works in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter last year. It’s a good old fashioned Caribbean style BBQ with jerk chicken, rum cake, curry goat, rice and peas. Listen to reggae, ska and rock steady music whilst drinking Wray and Nephew rum, Appleton Estate cocktails and cold Red Stripe beer.

If the full £2,000 is raised via a Crowdfunder campaign, Mr Jerk hopes to provide a social network for people so they do not feel isolated within the Birmingham community. He says: “It is somewhere to meet friends, play dominoes and listen to reggae.  Somewhere for all the family and where local reggae singers and bands can show their talent.”

You can pledge your support from £10 at their crowdfunding page here and check out the food and vibes on Bank Holiday Monday at St Pauls Square Church in the Jewellery Quarter.
